Kids activities

Introduce your little ones to the world of reading by bringing them along to our library activities for kids.

Baby Rhyme Time 

Baby Rhyme Time is a fun and educational way to introduce your little ones to the world of reading. These free sessions are suitable for children aged 4 months to 2 years old.

Help develop your child's early literacy skills while you bounce and sing along to some classic rhymes and stories, in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Baby rhyme time is also a great opportunity to meet other parents of young children.

Baby Rhyme Time sessions are held every Friday morning at 9.30am, during school terms.

Bookings not required.   

Story Time 

For children aged 2-5 years, Story Time fosters a love of reading, encourages socialisation with other children and improves literacy skills through the use of rhymes, songs and stories. Fine motor skills are also improved through craft activities.  

A parent or guardian must accompany the child throughout the session.

Story Time sessions are held every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 10.30am, during school terms.

Bookings not required.
